? >> it may be overdone. the fundamentals in the economy justify the equity and well. it is hard to correlate with the sluggish growth we continue to see. outside of that the asset purchases by the fed and aggressive monetary policy we have seen serves the purpose of inflating risk premiums and essentially causing them to tighten places they wouldn't otherwise be. i don't think that is just an equity or fixed income issue. all sectors will be affected if that begins to unwind. connell: one of the big stories no doubt it's going to be one type of federal reserve will generate yellen oversee and willie federal reserve as to this risk or take away from it. what is your view? >> from a market perspective it is all about expectations, and the expectations are already in the price of fed is going to taper. we think the fed essentially already tapered this summer, so if you look back to announcements when the fed announced aggressive asset purchases, interest rates began to rise after that announcement. we would not be surprised to see riverreverse happen as the fed announces tapering of quantitativ

years. what does that tell you about the state of the economy? >> well, that's not very good news, stuart, but really, really is important here is not 1 percentage this week or last week, what really happens is economic policies. we could get this economy growing enormously if we put in good policies. a low rate flat tax, spending restraint. you know the drill. it's all there. and that, this is all a consequence of very bad economic policies by this administration and congress, especially the senate and they've put through a lot of tax increases this year and you're seeing the consequences of it. look at what obamacare has been doing, it's liighths catastrophe and why would you expect something really good to be coming out of this mess? i wouldn't. >> i think we've had this conversation before. >> yeah, we have. >> unfortunately. are we going to have it again in a couple of minutes? because i question whether you're going to get any change in economic policy in the next three years, i don't think you are, but i'll come back to you on that one in a second, okay? >> it's a deal. st
know the economy is essential, and it's good he was meeting with secretary geithner, but here on his signature issue not to take charge. and i have no doubt the white house is right, that secretary sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care, but the whole point is, there was nobody in charge in the administration. the president was turning to and saying i look to you for overall responsibility, and in this case it should have been the secretary of health and human services. she does run the department that oversees this. and the fact that he was not meeting with her one-on-one, i think, frankly, is not so much an indictment of her but of the white house operation. >> which is fascinating because we saw her testify very publicly, she took full responsibility for what had happened, but at the same time if this was so important to the president, you would think that there was a lot more one-on-one interaction especially on something that's so critical to him and his policy. professor, the president went on msnbc this week, he was asked about his manageme
workers, good for economy and part of the american dream. i really don't think government should have to set a minimum wage. i would like to believe employers would want to pay a fair wage and one that doesn't have to be supplemented with welfare food stamps and health care. it is a good feeling when you pay your employees a wage where they can buy and afford to purchase goods and wares being sold. it is embarrassing for people who work in retail stores where profits are soaring and employees are making -- employers are making large income but the staff cannot afford to buy the goods they are selling. connell: when i heard it be great if the government didn't set a minimum wage. the conservative argument against raising the minimum wage is if you raise the wage too much, these businesses, it will hurt job growth, they will not want to keep paying it and they will lay people off so it will be detrimental to your cost. that is the argument. >> i think it is a good argument and i support keep government out of these decisions whenever you can. let the private sector work its will. the qu
